WRTC has the best operators competing from the same location with similar antennas. The competition is intense with even small mistakes making a difference in the final standings.
Here are two examples that show how the contest scoring evolved over the course of the contest. It is quite exciting to watch the teams as they change positions.

“Cheerleading” is widely understood to occur when supporters make QSOs with only a favored team or exclusively spot that team on the DX-cluster. In a multi-band, multi-mode competition like WRTC, cheerleading also occurs when supporters make an excessive number of QSOs with their favored team when compared with the number of QSOs they make with other teams.(read more…)

They replace any previous version.
At the WRTC 2022 Association Assembly on 23 April 2021, having previously consulted the WRTC Sanctioning Committee, the assembly and Organizing Committee decided to postpone WRTC 2022 one year to 2023. There have been no changes in the qualification process or to the overall structure of the event and its sponsoring committee. A detailed report on the qualification standings will be prepared and released at a later date.
In consideration of the worldwide public health challenges from the
Covid-19 pandemic, we believe our decision is reasonable. We have received many communications from competitors and friends of WRTC and have taken them very seriously.
There will be further announcements regarding WRTC as soon as new arrangements have been made. Thank you for your understanding and commitments in support of our adventure!
